As a textbook introducing very basic basic programming it's not too bad. However, if you are just looking for a book on Python programming, or a general introduction to programming for your own personal purposes it's not worth the inflated price-tag that comes along with it being prescribed reading material.
It may also be worth noting, that although this says 3rd edition (International edition), this ebook varies from the normal 3rd edition that is required by some university courses. Specifically the questions at the end of each chapter differs between these editions, so you might end up having to get the correct question from someone that has the correct edition if you want to pass your tests.
You may want to consider trying to get the exact edition you need, but good luck trying to find the correct one in ebook form on Amazon, or directly from the publisher who refuses to sell or rent it to anyone outside of the US or Canada.
Considering this issue, I think I'm being charitable giving the book three stars, but this rating is based more on the content than on the foibles of the publisher.
